For the last four years the Boston University Superfund Basic Research Program (BU SBRP) Outreach Core and the Boston Area Health Education Center (BAHEC; a program of the Boston Public Health Commission) have helped spice up local teens' summers by using this fascination with disaster scenarios to empower youth to think about their connection to the environment.
The Environmental Health Disaster Scenario program conducts group role-modeling activities based around contamination or pollution emergencies at the beginning of the BAHEC's Youth to Health Careers Summer Program as part of a health expo that features different careers in public health.
BAHEC, the local branch of a nationwide, federally funded program seeking to diversify, increase awareness of, and improve the quality of the health care service system, works with local universities, public school systems, and community agencies to recruit students for the summer program.
